The Camera Store Presents:

Photography Books Workshop with Dan Milnor, Blurb Photographer at Large

“How to Make a Book that Works.”

For the first time, the Camera Store and Blurb connect to bring Blurb's most popular workshop to Calgary.

Join professional photographer Dan Milnor as he explores the possibilities and opportunities available today for creating and sharing your work in photography books. From the simple and informal to the retrospective monograph, the choices of today are greater than ever before. This workshop will break down the choices, materials and philosophy behind making your own photography book. The goal of the workshop is to provide a complete picture of the bookmaking process within the context of a quickly changing photography and publishing industry. Whether you are experienced at making books or this is something brand new, Dan brings his practical, working perspective and you're sure to walk away with new inspiration.

Bring your notebooks, your questions and your sense of humor.

Daniel Milnor is currently “Photographer at Large” for Blurb, Inc. the world’s premiere print-on demand publishing platform. He splits his time between the smog-choked arteries of Southern California and the spiritual landscape of New Mexico. Milnor is a former newspaper, magazine and commercial photographer who now works primarily on long-term projects. His work has taken him from the rural corners of the United States to Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.

He has taught at Art Center College of Design, Academy of Art University, The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, The Julia Dean Workshops and the Photo Experience Workshops.  An early adopter of select technologies such as print-on-demand books and magazines, Milnor has created and published over one hundred unique titles, including the recently released “Manifesto Magazine,” which showcases the world’s best documentary photography. Milnor’s writing and photography has been featured in Camera Arts Magazine, Black and WhiteMagazine, Life Magazine, Zone Zero, Flash Flood, Finite Photo, Resolve, Hasselblad Gallery as well as many others.

He recently began a long-term mentoring program for photographers wishing to learn more about producing in-depth documentary projects.  Additionally, Milnor is the author the blog Smogranch which allows him to speak his mind, post his mother’s poetry and bring together like-minded people around the globe.

His work is in the collections of both The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The George Eastman House.
